Man Who Runs Child Porn Empire For Elite Pedophile Ring Set Free By Judge

Refused to name ‘important’ pedophilia network members out of ‘courtesy’

A man who runs a child pornography empire for an elite pedophile ring was set free by a judge, despite being found guilty by the jury for multiple child abuse charges.

45-year-old New Zealand citizens Stephen Michael Remiens was caught by Australian police with 6000 indecent images and videos of children that he was uploading to a global pedophilia network and pleaded guilty to four counts of child porn and exploitation charges.

Throughout the trail, Remiens refused to name any of his “clients” and smiled as he smugly told the court:

“I deal with some very important people.

“I will not reveal their names out of courtesy.”

Despite Remiens total lack of remorse for the crimes he admitted to, which the prosecutor described as “abhorrent,” he walked free Southport District Court after the judge set his free.

Herald Sun reports: Remiens was given immediate parole and a two-year suspended sentence for each charge.

Remiens was charged with possessing child exploitation material, using a carriage service to solicit child porn, and two counts of using a carriage service to transmit, make available, publish, advertise, or promote child pornography.

The New Zealand citizen was also handed a five-year, $500 good behavior bond.

The court was told some of the images in his possession were considered to be in the “most serious” category.

Remiens admitted to having the child porn but refused to give up the search terms he used or the people he communicated with, “out of courtesy”, the court was told.

Court documents revealed the messages Remiens used when transmitting child porn online, which were accompanied by images of girls who appeared to be as young as five.

He asked questions like “Hi am interested in trading some clips and pictures Steve” and “Hi. Do you have pics to trade?”

The court was told Remiens became interested in the pictures following the breakup of an 11-year marriage.

In sentencing, Judge David Kent QC said he took into account the 61 days Remiens had already spent in custody following his August 2015 arrest.
